Professional Possibilities

Hey teens! There are LOTS of different paths in life. Some require a four-year degree and others do not. In celebration of Career Development Month in November, come and hang with some folks who have taken the road less traveled. Bring a friend, enjoy some snacks in the teen area and find out what it is like to pursue an "under the radar" career from people who have forged their own path in life – like an electrician, a tattoo artist, an entrepreneur, and a culinary artist (to name a few). It is YOUR life – what do you want to do with it?
